A day of Fun in the Oh so Hot sun:)

I am so thankful this pregnancy isn't holding me back from doing fun things with Ty and Kiley. I know once the babies get here finding time to do anything outside of the house for the first several months is going to be a challenge. Pretty soon I am facing the possibility of being put on bed rest, because of the fact that I am having twins-and my size. I don't see myself carrying to term- even though that is what I am praying and hoping for.
So, while time and these babies allow I am up and about enjoying life, summer weather and being a mom to my 2 other kiddos. With Tyler gearing up to start kindergarten here very soon I am trying to make this summer a summer of fun for him! I Can't believe my little baby is starting kindergarten so soon, but that's a whole other blog post:)
Jas and I decided to take the kids to Six Flags, in Vallejo. I was so worried about the weather just because, even with 100 SPF smeared all over us in layers somehow Kiley and I manage to burn. With in the first 5 minutes of being in the sun I turn red like a tomato. Ty is lucky- I can lather him up and he won't burn. But the weather was on our side. It was beautiful out and while it was warm it wasn't unbearable hot. Luckily they have lots of water areas to play in as well so we were set. The kids had a blast- and I think Jas and I did too. Watching them enjoy themselves makes any trip like this worth while. The food, rides and shows were great. The kids loved the dolphins- especially Kiley. She wanted a dolphin plush toy for her souvenir- Ty of course wanted candy. That boy- any time he can gets an excuse to get some candy in him hes all for it! He ended up picking out the most random thing-a flashlight with his name on it. Only my son!
The only hard part of the day for me was the fact that I couldn't go on any of the rides. I know why obviously but I would have loved to have been the one to take Kiley on her first ride. Luckily her auntie took her in my place. At the end of the day we were beat- but it was totally worth every second!!!

20 weeks! Half way there!! Happy 4th!

So, I am half way through my 3rd pregnancy with the TWINS! I can't imagine how quick the next 15-20 weeks will go by seeing how fast the first 20 weeks went. I am feeling a realm of emotions from this. I can't imagine what life will be like once they get here. I wonder what they will look like, if they will have my nose or his hair color, my toes or his...little things like that. I am enjoying every last second of this because this is the last pregnancy I Will ever experience. 4 children to love and raise is wonderful. It's going to be hectic and crazy at times I am sure. I couldn't imagine having more after this. I don't think it'd be fair to the 4 I have. I never thought (though I am super happy) that I would be a mommy of 4. I have plenty of love to go around though and am so thankful for this gift. There is nothing greater, more rewarding to me then being a mother. I thank my lucky stars everyday to have my kids- and the 2 that are on the way!! Thanks Jas for taking these pics for me to cherish for years to come, where I can look back and remember what it was like to have life growing inside of me...the most empowering feeling in the world:) I had a great time spending the 4Th with you and am so lucky to have you as my friend. Love ya!
